Also called Carolina Larkspur and Blue Larkspur, though the flowers can vary from nearly white to blue to purple. Prairie Larkspur, like other perennial larkspurs, often goes dormant after it blooms and should be planted among other plants that will persist throughout the season, such as blazing stars and prairie clovers.

It is attractive to several native bees. All parts of the plant are toxic to mammals if ingested.
